Authentic Moroccan but also very quirky. A must to visit as it’s rather unique, in that it’s tiny, traditional and only ten diners at one time. The food was delicious and so very cheap. The service was warm and welcoming. Great for a chilled night.

Small & modest, but the best cooked dorados I have had in a long time. So many good flavours with simple and fresh ingredients! Nice surprice with a beautiful small platter of different cooked vgetables and fresh juice as a starter.
The first time I had lunch there, i came back for dinner too!

Yes, it is indeed tiny. Which is part of the charm. You feel like you are eating with everybody else, a 'we're all in this together' kind of feeling.
Nice to support a women's business in a country where women's economic power is at very early stages of development. These two are self-assured, friendly and highly capable.
I like a restaurant with very few things on the menu - you know the food is freshly prepared and based on what's great that day at the fish or vegetable market. Seasonal eating in a simple space.

When you eat here, you feel exclusive. It only seats 10 people at a time! The food is basic but so, so good. The staff is wonderful. I had to wait a bit for a seat. I’m so glad I did.

Cozy, tiny place serving only couple of meals, though very delicious. We had shrimps and wonderful juicy fish, both with starters and two kinds of fresh juice. Highly recommended.
